Dispersion-managed soliton propagation in short-period dispersion maps

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We show through detailed numerical simulations that stable dispersion-managed solitons exist in short-period dispersion maps characterized by a dispersion-management period that is less than the amplifier spacing. These pulses show regular dynamics within the amplifier span and have greater energy enhancement than the conventional dispersion-managed soliton. We also show that greater interaction is obtained in this regime as a result of this increased enhancement. © 2000 Optical Society of America.
